Hi Ashfaq,

I'm unable to download external files at my workplace. Do you have browser-displayed instructions I can follow to create whatever it is you've created in Bookmark Name.qvw ?

thanks

As Gysbert hinted before, I advise you to check this thread:

How can I get the name of the active bookmark?

Check the last comment (by Rob Wunderlich) and the link in it.

I think it may help you and there's no need to download any file. Hope that help you.

Best regards

Thanks for that but you'll have to excuse my ignorance here.

Do I have to create a test.txt file and enter my bookmark names ?

How do I create a QVBookmarks/Bookmark table ?

How do I create a macro ? (I've never done this before !)

Do I have to link the macro to an object ?

Help !!

It will be created automatically when you create call macro.,


Q) How do I create a QVBookmarks/Bookmark table ?

A) After you call macro test file will be created and your application will be reloaded.

Then you need to create table box with ID and name.


Q) How do I create a macro ? (I've never done this before !)

A) have a look at attached image.


Q) Do I have to link the macro to an object ?

A) yes, you need to link it to a button. have a look at attached image
